Watchdog Group: Herpin’s Junket Subject of New Ad Campaign

Public Campaign Action Fund, a campaign finance and ethics watchdog, launched a television ad campaign today to educate voters in the upcoming recall election for the Colorado Senate’s 11th District.

The ad criticizes former Colorado Springs City Councilor Bernie Herpin for participating in a controversial $25,000 junket billed to utility ratepayers. Herpin later tried to hide emails from the public in which the El Paso County treasurer criticized him for going on the junket and asking the city clerk for favorable redistricting.
